A large number of our cells contain CBD receptors, so they are all waiting for us to take the substance. We do not create a CBD ourselves, but we are therefore made for it. In fact, we have consumed CBD for millions of years, and are now actually suffering from chronic deficiency.

Cannabis has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain and alleviate all kinds of ailments. These are 9 ways our ancestors used the herb to improve women's health.

What Does CBD Mean?
CBD is an abbreviation for cannabidiol. Sitting in the cannabis plant. One of those (113) compounds is CBD. This is the most famous of all cannabinoids. CBN, CBC, CBG and more than a hundred also belong to this spectrum.

Where Does CBD Come From?
CBD has of course been around for as long as the cannabis plant; millions of years. The first cannabis growers probably lived in China. The Vikings, Romans, British and other peoples took the plant to all corners of the world. Cannabis plants naturally contain a lot of CBD and little THC. Humans have consumed the plant for centuries, directly and indirectly. Chickens and other animals were given hemp as food.

Especially Healthy For Women
Cannabis has many health benefits, whether you are male or female. Yet the herb has been an effective medicine for women for centuries. Not only because women have very different ailments, but also because women are more susceptible to headache, depression, chronic fatigue and eating disorders than men.

Female Biochemistry
Also remember that our unique biochemistry takes into account that women react very differently to cannabis than men. For example, it appears that the interaction between THC and estrogen causes an increased level of pain relief. As a painkiller, cannabis does more. Research also shows that men are more likely to get into a psychosis due to weed than women.

Not High On Medication
It is important to note that the cannabis medicines below differ from the weed that you get in the coffee shop today. That stuff naturally contains THC, the psychoactive substance that is released by smoking or vaping.

Edible and other orally ingested cannabis products require a process called decarboxylation (smoking is a natural way of decarboxylation). Without this process, THC is just THC-A and you cannot make strong tinctures, oils or edibles. It is likely that cannabis was often used in ancient times in low THC doses.

4. Depression
Women have twice as much risk of depression than men. This is due to biological, hormonal, psychological and other factors.

Clay tablets from ancient Mesopotamia, as old as 1000 years, describe the use of cannabis as a weapon against depression and an ingredient in various medical prescriptions.

5. Chronic Fatigue
Of all the chronically tired in the country, most are women, and of all working people, young women (25 to 35) are the most burned out.

Weed has been used for centuries to promote a good night's sleep in Europe, the Indian Himalayas and tribes around the world.

6. Appetite
Not only young women suffer from it; but also more than 1 in 30 women over forty has an eating disorder. Apart from that, almost all of us struggle with our diet and millions of people lack a healthy self-image when it comes to their weight or figure. Anyone who wants to arrive knows that smoking a joint will stimulate your appetite and that your favorite snack will suddenly taste even better (taste it first, then eat it!) Research also shows that; something that goddesses already realized thousands of years ago.

Is CBD Legal?
After reading all this, next question that comes to your mind will be, is CBD oil legal? The answer is “YES”. In 2018, CBD oil is legal in most countries around the world as long as it contains low levels of THC (the natural compound found in cannabis plants that makes you ‘high’).

Now that CBD is legal in all fifty American member states, the market is completely open and scientists can go wild. CBD is a fast-growing million-dollar industry and you stumble across CBD products online. There is CBD chewing gum, hand cream, baby ointment, tea and so on.
